Fine Art/C.Ruano Llopis
QUESTION: I recently acquired this painting signed C.Ruano Llopis. It is on canvas. Measures app. 27x 21 1/2 without frame. Is this an original or print?
Thank you for your help.
ANSWER: Hello Marge,
Based on this image, I believe that this work looks like a painting. I browsed through a few auction records, and it looks like C. Ruano Llopis' paintings sell for anywhere from $700-$2,000.
I can perhaps recommend contacting Bonhams auctions for a second opinion at http://www.bonhams.com/
I hope that this information can be of some assistance.

Thanks for reply. I really appreciate it!
I am assuming after reading your reply that this is indeed an original painting and not a print. Am I assuming right?
Yes, from the image it looks like a painting to me, but these things are very difficult to tell without seeing the work in person. I recommend taking it to a local gallery or contacting Bonhams for further verification.
